    I'm planning on repainting my room, and the current color is an off-white and it is pretty boring, so here's some examples:

    Redish

    Lighter

    Greenish

    Dark

    Brownish

    Blueish

    I like the dark one. Neutral and cosy but possibly a little claustrophobic...

    I am a firm believer in either white or a light neutral tone for walls - bring colour into a room with pictures and accessories. If you are bored of white/off-white then the "brownish" one looks best to me, sort of a nice taupe colour.

    A personal choice of course, but I choose blue, though a slightly paler one than you show. You don't want it to detract too much from other items, as dietcokevanilla suggests.

    I'd go with just one or two walls with the tinted color and the others a white of some sort to compliment it. Having an accent wall really works nicely, especially if you make all the walls a dark color it tends to make everything too dark.

    Good luck,

    I really like that last blue one. Either that or I would go with a dark browny-red earthy color.

    All those colours look good, except red.

    There, I helped you narrow it down from six to five options. *gives himself a pat on the back*

    I like natural earthy colours. Anything that's warm. I think the brownish colour looks really good.

    I like the yellow. The billiard green will make you sleepy. The gray works if you use your computer for design. The green, if it were Apple green, would be nice also.

    The mustard and the blue look the best with what you have hanging on the walls.

    I like the yellow one. The rest are too dark.

    Paint it Infra Dead, or Ultra Violent, or Gan Green...

    <10 points if you can identify the book in which these colors were mentioned.>

    I liked the redish, but it would be better darker IMO.

    Mix all the colors together and paint your wall the color that comes out :)

    I don't really like any of the colors. I like more neutral colors, but I'd go with the brownish-red or the blue.
